A revision of the genus Sebekia Sambon, 1922 (Pentastomida) from crocodilians with descriptions of five new species
The genus Sebekia Sambon, 1922 (Pentastomida), parasitic in crocodilians, is reviewed and a related species, S. oxycephala, is described, which may be different in several respects from that in species from South American hosts elsewhere.
Helminth assemblages of Uromys spp. (Muridae : Hydromyinae) from Australia, Papua New Guinea and Papua Indonesia and comparison with assemblages in Melomys spp.
The differences found between the helminth assemblage from Papua New Guinea and Australia suggest that U. caudimaculatus may have travelled to Australia from New Guinea with a small pool of helminths species that was subsequently added to by host switching from sympatric rodent hosts, and may have lost many of the helmineths that travelled with it following arrival in Australia.
Using Combined Morphological, Allometric and Molecular Approaches to Identify Species of the Genus Raillietiella (Pentastomida)
These analyses show that the morphological features used in pentastomid taxonomy change as the parasite transitions through developmental stages in the definitive host, and facilitate valid descriptions of new species of pentastomes.
Competition in an invaded rodent community reveals black rats as a threat to native bush rats in littoral rainforest of south-eastern Australia.
These findings identify R. rattus as a significant competitive threat to native R. fuscipes and active conservation of common native species is recommended to forest managers based on the potential for the invasive rodent to prevent re-invasion subsequent to pest control efforts and maintain invasion resistance.
HEALTH EVALUATION OF FREE-RANGING EASTERN BETTONGS (BETTONGIA GAIMARDI) DURING TRANSLOCATION FOR REINTRODUCTION IN AUSTRALIA
Abstract Sixty (19 male, 41 female) free-ranging adult eastern bettongs (Bettongia gaimardi) were captured in Tasmania and translocated to the Australian Capital Territory between July 2011 and…
